British Olympic diver Tom Daley thanked his fans for their support and received the backing of British Swimming after announcing on Monday he is dating a man.

The 19-year-old Daley, who won bronze in the men's 10-meter platform at last year's London Games, tweeted: "Overwhelmed by all the support! Means the world! Thanks so much guys".

Daley had earlier made the announcement on YouTube, saying in a video: "Come spring this year my life changed massively when I met someone and they make me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great - and that someone is a guy.
